All Brown Card holders who maintain funds in the Bear Bucks Account can make purchases with the Brown Card at the Brown University Computer Store. The Brown Card also identifies students, faculty and staff for exemption from state sales tax in the University Computer Store on equipment and supplies purchased for academic use.
The Brown Card can also act as a charge card for purchasing computer equipment and supplies using the Bookstore Charge Account. It is very important to be clear with Computer Store salespersons as to whether you would like to use your Bookstore Charge Account or your Bear Bucks Account when making a purchase. For information on the Brown University Computer Store or using the Bookstore Charge Account contact the Bookstore Business Office, or call 401-863-3166. You can also visit the Bookstore Technology Center.
